Keep the umbrellas close - here's the weather to expect for the bank holiday weekend

Cian Murray

You may want to bring both an umbrella and sunscreen if travelling this bank holiday weekend, as the weather is set to be typically mixed.

Friday will be a cool bright day, with west to northwest winds moving across the country.

There will be occasional showers, with temperatures hitting as low as 15c in the Northwest.  It will be a lot warmer in the Southeast, with temperatures to reach up to 19c.

There is good news for anyone travelling to the All-Ireland quarter finals in Croke Park on Saturday and Sunday as it's set to stay bright with only scattered showers.

Temperatures on Saturday will range from 15 to 19 degrees with light to moderate west to northwest breezes. Sunday will be much the same, with a fair amount of dry weather and a few showers.

However, the forecast for Monday isn't as positive.

“Current indications suggest that Monday should be bright, but there will be a greater threat of rain moving up from the South,” a Met Eireann forecaster told Independent.ie.

Further spells of rain are expected to move across the country on Monday evening and Tuesday morning.
